Old lampshades update well with the addition of fringe or crystal bead trim to the base of the shades; beaded trims are available at most craft stores and add a fresh, fun look. If your shade is patterned or embellished already, look for simple beaded designs and, if your shade is plain, think about a more ornate beading employing multiple shapes and colors.
A simple ribbon trim can be one of the most affordable ways to spruce up the lighting in your home. If your lamp has a colored base, pick a ribbon that is a few shades darker or lighter for contrast (don't get an exact match, use complementary colors).
If you have fabric left over from a recent sewing project, you can repurpose it into the perfect lampshade. Look for an opaque lampshade and reupholster it with the fabric of your choice using superglue or eve a glue gun. For a quirky design, pick a square-paneled lampshade and dress each side with a different pattern.
